Thanks Alan !  :D

All the hollow surfaces will be covered with Oratex "antic".
All the plywood is going to received a layer of varnish. And I should arrived at something like the first picture of the thread.

Hello there,
Well, the Opel project is almost finished ! Ready to fly !
Now, waiting for the good opportunity (next week end should be the good one), I can concentrate on all the small details... Cockpit, rocket pods, wires and so on.
And thanks again to Anthony for the lettering !

Well... I may have to change all my plans for the next month !..

Since this morning, I'm the proud father of a little Aoife !  :D  :D  :D
Tired now..
Baby and mother are well !

So, we'll see for this week end... If the weather is perfect for the Opel, I may take 1 hour to do the fly test...

You can send me a text if you are coming, and I'll let you know my plans.
